Sliding Doors

Standard

Miss-Charlotte-webAs the door to the carriage slammed shut, Miss Charlotte looked longingly at the carefree looking gypsy girl in the street and wondered what it might be like to sleep in a wagon, to sleep under the stars, to sit around a campfire to keep warm……. free from her minders & watchers & the bitter chill of winter that had settled on her life.

Selina looked longlingly at the fine carriage pulling up just in front of her & watched as a young woman, resembling a frightened kitten got in.  She wondered what it might be like to sleep in a real bed, in a quiet room and to have enought to eat & to be warm……. free from wagon life & the intrusion of other people's wakefulness and the bitter chill of winter that had settled on her life.

  1. Keron, I love my gypsy pages!! What a wonderful addition to my book. The story is so true for real life as well. I know I sometimes wonder if the “grass is greener on the other side of the fence”. I can see the longing and wondering in the faces of your drawings. Beautiful and I can’t wait to get my paws on them. Thank you, Thank you. Susan
